Snow [22 Jan 2005|12:27pm]
So, there's a blizzard that just started to hit New York about half an hour ago. I went out to drop off some dry cleaning and pick up some lunch. When I left my apartment the first flurries had just begun. When I left the deli with my lunch it was snowing hard. When I finished eating the ground was totally covered. We're supposed to get at least a foot of snow in the city, possibly as much as 20 inches. There hasn't been a big snow in NYC since Presidents' Day of 2003. I went out and got all stocked up on food so I'll be fine for the rest of the weekend. No point in leaving if I don't have to.

The only thing I wish I had now is a big stockpot. Then I could make some soup. I have a bunch of canned soup in the cabinet, but it's never as good as when you make your own. I guess that's the next thing on my list of kitchen equipment to purchase.

You know, when you get married you get to register for all sorts of cool stuff for your house. A good portion of that stuff is kitchen-related. Maybe I should go and get married just so I can get all those nifty gifts. I don't have anyone to marry yet, but I suppose I could always mail-order a bride from somewhere. Because, you know, I could really use a nice stock pot. And a mixer. And a nice set of paking pans. And an ice-cream maker. And maybe one of those rice-cooker machines...

New Year, Same Old... [04 Jan 2005|10:18pm]
[ mood | defiant ]

Now that it's the new year I suppose I should post some sort of shallow post where I look back fondly on 2004, give some sort of retrospective, then look forward optimistically to 2005, and top it off with some resolutions which I won't follow.

Yeah right.

OK, 2004 was pretty sucky. Well, not completely sucky, but it was certainly not my best year. Certainly not in the top 5. Maybe not even in the top 10. I wouldn't say it was my worst year ever though. There was definitely some major suckiness during the early 90's, (middle school in NJ is not a fun place if you're neither popular nor athletic.) I also cannot remember 1978-1981, but I'm assuming they went pretty well overall. But, in a nutshell, I'm glad 2004 is over.

For starters, work didn't really go that well. Granted, it could have been much worse. Around April and May I was really worried I was going to be fired, and up until November I was still convinced I wasn't getting any sort of bonus this year. Since those of us on Wall Street rely on our bonuses for a major portion of our compensation, this is a pretty serious concern. Fortunately, things ended well, and I'm looking forward to having a good year going forward.

Second, I have been single since mid-February. And, while I've had a few quasi-relationship things since then, there's been no girl elevated to the status of Signficant Other yet. I've never been particularly dismayed about being single - I'm willing to wait for the right girl to come along. However, as more of my friends get married, I find myself in need of a date for a variety of social events. I hate scrambling for dates.

Oh, and that whole Presidential election thing. I don't think I need to go into details on that issue. All I'll say is that given two horrendous candidates, we somehow managed to pick the lesser of the two. Probably. Honestly I don't even know.

So, enough of 2004. On to 2005. I don't plan on making any resolutions for the new year, since I never follow through. Last year I planned on taking the GMATs, taking some classes at CUNY, and running on a regular basis. Yup, 0 for 3. I have been going to the gym on a very regular basis though, so I did manage to succeed on the resolution that many people make every year but I didn't.

So, with that in mind, I'll state the following: I hereby do NOT resolve to write more in LJ. I do NOT resolve to run a 10k this spring. And I definitely do NOT resolve to find myself a girl in time for all those summer weddings I have coming up.

Peanut Butter [14 Dec 2004|11:43pm]
It's safe to say that the majority of the American peanut butter market is shared between Skippy and Jif. While some of us may have brand preferences, how many of us have actually done an actual comparison of the two, including a taste test?

As I was making myself a late-night snack, I realized I was basically out of peanut butter. So, I ran around the corner, picked up a jar, and resumed the task at hand. I then realized that I had bought Skippy, but still had a little Jif leftover. Time for a taste test. On toast. One slice, half Jif, half Skippy. The results were intriguing.

The two brands, specifically, were Simply Jif and regular Skippy.
Nutrition: The two brands were nearly identical, with Jif containing slightly more fat but also slightly more protein. Interesting, as Simply Jif is supposed to be Jif's "healthier" version of peanut butter.

Ingredients: Jif contains mono- and di-glycerides, as well as molasses, none of which are present in Skippy. Skippy, however, contains more sugar than Jif (as judged by the order of the ingredients.)

Color: Skippy appeared more orangey, while Jif seemed to have more of a tan color.

Taste: Skippy was definitely sweeter than Jif. Jif also had a more natural taste. While Jif tasted almost exactly like roasted peanuts, Skippy was reminiscent of fresh peanuts in the shell. But not quite - it seemed just a little too sweet.

Conclusions: Despite it's slightly higher fat content and the presence of those *-glycerides, Simply Jif clearly wins the taste battle.

Because I know Dashi loves it when I do this:

Chicken in Dijon sauce

Ingredients:
1/4 onion, chopped
2 small cloves garlic, chopped
1 pkg boneless chicken breast
2 Tbs dijon mustard
1 cube chicken bullion
1 pkg pasta of choice
1 cup brocolli
1/2 cup white cooking wine
olive oil
butter
Directions:
Put bullion cube in pot of water, boil
Saute chicken breast in olive oil until cooked through
Remove chicken from pan
Put pasta in the boiling water & bullion mixture
Put 1 large pat of butter in pan used for cooking chicken
Saute onions and garlic in butter
Add to pan the mustard, wine, and 1 cup of liquid from the boiling pasta/bullion mixture
Stir until sauce in pan is smooth and consistent
Add chicken
When pasta is done, drain and plate
Add broccoli to sauce, let cook for an additional minute
Serve chicken and sauce over pasta

You can try substituting some sort of non-dairy spread for the butter. Let me know if it works ok. Also, if you can locate some shallots at your local supermarket, I'd defintitely use them either as a replacement for or in addition to the onions.

Back On Track [09 Nov 2004|11:23pm]
It's amazing how things can turn around in a matter of a few days. If you had asked me last week how things were going at work, you'd have received a very philisophical answer about how things can only improve, and how this year has been a learning experience, and how I at least still have a job and all of that. After the past few days, I'm thinking that maybe things aren't so bad after all. Literally in the past 2 days I've made up for months of spinning my wheels. I feel like I'm back in the good old days of last year, when I would walk into work with the expectation, no, the determination to make something happen. I will make 2004 a good year. I will do better than breakeven. I will beat last year's total. It will be tough, but I am determined to do it.

For a long time I've felt like I've lost my edge. I used to have a very competitive spirit - I wanted to be the best in everything. Somewhere along the line I learned that I could do minimal work and still get by, and I got lazy. It's taken a while, but I'm starting to get back that edge. I'm starting to remember how good it feels to be the best again.

Oh, on a side note, Mark got married this weekend. The wedding was fun, albeit a little sparsely populated in the single woman department. No dancing for me. Still, a good time was had by all.

Parade [01 Nov 2004|12:34am]
Just got back from the annual NYC Halloween parade. I had never gone before, and it was definitely one of those experiences worth doing once, but probably not worth doing again. We waited for over an hour in crushing crowds before the parade actually got to where we were standing. Ironically, once the parade actually got to us, most of the people left. There were all sorts of people marching, dancing, and prancing up 6th Avenue. My favorite costumes were the Ghostbusters complete with a hearse painted up to look exactly like the car from the movie, all the people dressed up as iPods, the very authentic Stormtroopers, and of course, Frank the bunny from Donny Darko. There were also an inordinate amount of anti-Bush protesters. If there were any doubts as to how the city is voting on Tuesday, this parade erased them. I'd say a good 10% of the parade was anti-Bush protest. Naturally, the Billionaires for Bush made a welcome appearance.

Halloween [31 Oct 2004|06:13pm]
So, much fun was had last night for Halloween.

First off, Meir came up from Philadelphia to hang out and see the NY Halloween scene. We went down to Luna Lounge to see Andrew's band play a great set, and were joined by Krikor, Robin, Taryn and her friend Cathy. After the show, (and much drinking,) we headed up the apartment, where we were joined by Rob & Liz, their friend Barry, his girlfriend, and his sister. Then Cathy's quasi-boyfriend Rick came by as well. Issues began to develop between Cathy, Taryn, Rick, and Meir, but all was calmed down eventually, with the help of additional beer. We broke out the party light and the vintage hip-hop music, and a good time was had by all.

Of course, the best part of the night were the costumes. Mostly they were half-ass last-minute creations. Meir bought a cheap hat, put a little paper that said "press" in the band, and went as a reporter. Krikor put on his Cobra shirt and went as a Cobra recruit. Robin actually put some effort in, and went as Shaun from Shaun of the Dead. And me, well, I got a little creative with a dishtowel and sunglasses. It's amazing I didn't get shot walking through the streets of NYC like that, but I survived.

Odds [30 Oct 2004|05:47pm]
There are roughly 8 million people living in New York City. The odds of running into a girl you asked out once in the middle of Grand Central: nearly zero. The oddis of running into a girl you once asked out in the middle of Grand Central with a giant zit on your face: 100%. I love NY.

Blind [19 Oct 2004|01:54am]
I was watching 60 Minutes last night, and they aired a segment on Ray Charles. Much of the piece stressed Ray's ability to cope with blindness and live a normal life. According to one of his friends, I believe it was Quincy Jones, Ray had no trouble at all getting around "except when a beautiful woman was around. Then he was really blind, walking into walls and all." Obviously the implication was that Ray Charles would pretend to need help in order to gain the sympathy of the woman in question, with the intention of flirting with her. (Apparently Ray Charles was quite the ladies' man - he had 7 children with 5 different women.) What I found interesting was the notion that a blind man would be concerned about the physical attractiveness of a woman.

I always thought that, in a weird way, blind people are lucky as far as relationships go. Society puts so much pressure on physical attractiveness that we focus almost exclusively on looks as our initial criterion in starting a relationship. Personality traits, which are far more important for the longevity of the relationship, are only secondary criteria at best. A blind person, however, can't judge someone on their looks. They only have personality to go on. They might marry someone who's hideously ugly, but to them that person is beautiful because of who they are. And I'd bet that relationship lasts a lot longer than one based on looks.

Not that I'd want to be blind, but I think it's a pretty significant positive to what's usually considered a bleak situation.

Why The AMEX Is Failing [13 Oct 2004|12:21am]
Today there was a big controversy on the floor regarding a certain trade. I know few of you are excited about the specific details, but bear with me here. I'll try and be as succinct as possible.

A broker, let's call him John, traded 5000 options as a cross, meaning he represented both the buyer and the seller on the trade. Fine, no problem. A second broker, let's call her Jane, is alerted by her firm that this trade took place. Their client is interested in doing the trade, so Jane asks Joe if there's any more available. John says yes, that one of his clients will give up 2000 of the 5000 to Jane's client. Also OK so far. John and Jane both report to their clients that the trade is done. Then John tells Jane to go do the other half of the trade. What other half? Jane was not aware that there was another side to the trade. Problem. Jane's customer is not interested in that other half of the trade. Bigger problem. John's customer, however, is not willing to take back the trade he just gave up. Really big problem. John and Jane now have a $5,000 error. Here's where it gets sticky: Jane claims she's not liable. Since the trade was done outside of the trading crowd, it never "really" happened. This is tecnhically correct, since no trade is legally permitted to occur outside the crowd. But Jane, if it's illegal to trade outside the crowd, what exactly were you and Joe just doing over there in the corner? It sure sounds like a trade to me. Jane, are you telling me that you're admitting to doing something illegal in order to weasel out of your half of a $5,000 error? Does that mean that if I steal a car and drive into someone's pool I shouldn't have to pay the damages because techncially I should never have been driving that car in the first place?

Now, this whole situation was ruled on, and appealed, and appealed again, and then again, and is now being sent to arbitration. What I want to know is why haven't Joe and Jane been disciplined for trading outside the crowd? This happens to be a really big deal. Trades must be consummated within the trading crowd because, if they weren't, customers would have no way of knowing if they got a fair price. Since the brokerage firm is also representing themselves in this case, it's in the firm's best interest to give the customer as bad a price as possible, since those losses are realized as profits by the trader on the other side. It's the same reason why stock must always be traded on the stock exchange and nowhere else - transparency of markets allows for fair trading.

What got me livid, though, is the fact that nobody on the AMEX seemed to be upset about this. None of the other traders or specialists realized the precedent this sets. If you allow trades to go up between brokers outside the crowd, then you might as well just let the broker booths phone each other. And if you're letting the booths phone each other, you may as well have the firms contact each other directly, without even bothering with brokers at all. At that point there is exactly zero transparency of markets. Customers have absolutely no recourse against their brokers taking complete advantage of them. Something like this would never be allowed to take place on the CBOE. But since the AMEX is controlled by brokers, no trader or specialist is willing to take a stand against abuse like this. Frankly, if this is how the AMEX is going to treat blatantly illegal action, we might as well close the exchange now.

Sick? [09 Oct 2004|11:01pm]
I think I'm getting sick. I'm not at that completely sick stage yet, just at that sore throat something is wrong stage. I spent most of today indoors trying to fight it off. Had plenty of soup, and then some weird fruit drink that claims to have 1000% of the daily recommended Vitamin C. It also claims that each bottle contains 2 pounds of fruit in juice form. Yum. Need I describe the thickness of this drink? Keep in mind, I really dislike thick drinks like smoothies. This was not a pleasant experience.

I did leave the apartment for a little while today. It was Open NYC and Andrew wanted to check out the Masonic Lodge on 23rd Street. Very interesting. Lots of impressive architecture and weird symbolism and all that. Now, I know that back in college I was in a fraternity and took all of it seriously back then and all. However, once I graduated, I realized that playing clubhouse with your buddies doesn't amount to all that much in the real world. Apparently some people didn't get the memo. On the other hand, 14 US Presidents were Masons, so maybe they're on to something here...

AHA! [02 Oct 2004|02:22am]
Two of my good friends, who have known each other for many years, are finally dating. We've been saying to them that they should get together for as long as I've known them, but they always refused. Now, I find out, they finally caved and got together. About damn time. Of course, I didn't find out from them. It was another mutual friend who let me in on it. He, however, didn't know about certain events that took place earlier this year which involved me and one of said friends. Thus, the reason why they hadn't told me. Admittedly, I'd pretty much figured it out already, but now I have conclusive proof of what's going on. Further, I don't see why they wouldn't want to tell me either. It's not like I'd be even the slightest bit mad or upset at all. In fact, the opposite - I'm really genuinely happy for the two of them. Usually when I'm single and I find out about happy couples, the schadenfreude immediately kicks in. But not this time. Good for them.

How To Be A Hipster [29 Sep 2004|08:04pm]
I thought <a href="http://www.nationallampoon.com/nl/03_voices/hipster/hipster.asp>this </a> would be important reading. I'm sure Heatherific will weigh in, since she's clearly the hippest and trendiest of all the people I know.
